Verla Van Sloten and Will Eilts

 

Verla Van Sloten and William Eilts closed the program by honoring our veterans.  Verla read several articles about early Decoration Day observances and the erection of Ireton's Civil War monument.  William sang the national anthem and "America" and Verla joined William in leading the audience in singing the "Battle Hymn of the Republic"
